Lets Read the game: A tragedy in too many pages
An introduction
Tragedy? The book is hilarious.

Damnit! You made me lose The Game.

I bought this book some time back, and I got about two or three chapters into it. The apparent philosophy of the thing, frankly, drew me up the wall, especially since this guy and his... ways, I suppose, is a real thing. I'll be following this, though, as I'm curious how it proceeds, but not curious to read it all.

Aw, and here I was coming into this thread hoping that you'd somehow figured out how to liveblog The Game. :<

South of honour. Really far south of it.
Just to add my own two cents to this, I don't think that reading Ulysses on such a schedule is deep; I think you've just got a really [CENSORED] memory. Heck, I haven't read The Epic of Gilgamesh since the first year of high school, and I can still remember everything I found appealing to me! Also, though I probably don't need to state this, merely reading a book does not equal understanding the material within.

Our heroes, ladies and gentlemen! Well, they can still turn sympathic somewhere along the line... right?
slowzombie
I think he's supposed to be pitiable at the point where he is complaining about not getting "any". I have a feeling it may all be downhill (ethically) from here.

BTW do message me if I am talking too much/not being funny.

Yeah, I guess that makes sort of sense, still, one of my problems with the book back when I tried it was that I found it exceedingly difficult to root for this guy.

On the topic of the writing in this blog, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Try to get down your natural reactions to the work. If it's bad, as I suspect it might be, we get to feed on your suffering, which is always fun, and if it's not, well, I guess you'll have to be more focused on the jokes, then :P
slowzombie
Unrelatable and egocentric main characters, with the spotlight mostly focused on the supposed 'sexiest' of them all, and now slowzombie wants to feed on suffering...does anyone else have deja vu? At least this appears to have better grammar...

Next updates gotten a bit delayed guys. I am only able to type one handed atm, but I'll get back on this ASAP
JosefBugman
^^ There are some similarities, yeah, but hopefully, this thing won't be nearly as mind-meltingly stupid as that other fic.

^ Take your time. I will avoid doing any "typing one-handed"-jokes. However, I will remark that you could write an awful lot about stewardesses if you so chose to *nod*
slowzombie
^^^ It puts me in mind of Least I Could Do, actually.

The tale/fail truly begins.
Well, presumably there's a reason why people read this stuff. To learn how to pick up mad chicks, brah For the psychology behind it?

Also, Scott Baio He's apparently famous, but I can't recall having seen him anywhere.
slowzombie
Before I say anything else, dice is plural. The word you need in there is die.

Yes, several mystery novels have used the obvious pun.

FurikoMaru
Not really, as there is only one dice in the chapter title :P
JosefBugman
... yeah, one die. Yahtzee comes with dice, some variants of Jacks come with a die.
FurikoMaru
Where do you think the phrase "The die is cast" comes from?
FurikoMaru
I assumed it was an exact translation of "Alea Jacta Est"
